â€œIâ€™m thrilled for the opportunity to direct,” Hatcher said. “So many of the crew and cast of Desperate Housewives have been encouraging me to do this for a long time, from Vanessa Williams to James Denton to the talented camera crew department and producers. Now that I have time, Iâ€™m excited to wholeheartedly conquer new ventures.”

“Jane by Design is charming, with very funny performances,” she added. “I look forward to working with new and old friends over there and helping them tell stories both in front and behind the camera.â€
